    The heart of this course examines the planets themselves, and reveals how they are constructed and how they differ from one another. By studying the physical astronomy of all the planets in the Solar System, we can attempt to understand their true nature. Ultimately, these lectures will bring us to a greater understanding of the Solar System's creation, which brings us again back to the beginning and what it means to us as we look outward from our rotating Earth.

    Author is interesting and sharp. The material presented is concise and packs a ton of knowledge in every minute, perfect for me, but you may to do some graphical research on the side if you are new to Astronomy. Loved every minute.

    I have to agree with Jackson; not sure what that other reviewer is referring to.

    These series of books have increased my awareness of literary constructs and rhetoric ten fold. Many favorite parts, but the chapters about Freud were captivating.
